Physical Description:
For being an older person it’s quite clear he’s kept himself in shape as he stands somewhat tall, fairly built, and toned. He has a horizontal scar below his left eye on the cheek bone. His hair is in a short medium fade, brown with grey hairs sprinkled in. His light brown eyes seem to have a cold stare most of the time in them, however, they do still reflect a rage of emotion in them. His right hand is cybernetic, he doesn’t mind if it’s revealed machinery or not, though at the current moment it does have a layer of synthetic skin attached to it so that it appears to be normal. His body seems to be very rugged almost as it’s seen it’s share of miles and wear and tear.

History:
Marco Gunther started his journey out as somewhat of a ruffian. He didn’t particularly care about rules or for those who told him what to do. He’s had several incidents with the local police on Earth when he was younger, though for nothing serious. Mostly for getting into fights with other people when they’d try to impose their will upon him. Per his parents advice he agreed to try and be serious for the Starfleet Academy. It wasn’t quite what he anticipated and had problems fitting in. Though the security course seemed to interest him a bit, he felt it to be lacking. One day he saw an ad while having lunch in the cafeteria in regards to the Star Fleet Marine Corps. It offered an entirely different perspective on the training and it felt like it reached out to him internally. He figured he’d be patient and wait on it even though it felt right. Though in his last year he had done some research on it and everything in his being knew that it was the right choice for him. He dropped out of the Starfleet Academy and gave up on being a Starfleet Officer for the time being and pursued his career in the Star Fleet Marine Force.

Early on he was assigned to a standard Star Fleet Marine Corps Fireteam. He grew close to his squad and saw action in several places. There was something thrilling and empowering about risking your life for those who were next to you in combat. The power armor was a whole new experience for him the one time he got to use it when he become the Fireteam Leader as a Sergeant. Eventually they scouted him as a prospect for the Scout Platoon. He fit right in and on one mission their team was ambushed by the Jem Hadar while on a mission in the Delta Quadrant. They lost about half of their team on that planetary skirmish, however due to quick judgement and action he managed to turn the tide from utter defeat to a victorious ‘regrouping’. There was more sense in living to fight another day than dying uselessly on a battlefield. He was awarded a medal for his valor and promoted to Second Lieutenant. He stayed with the Scout Platoon, now in a commanding position until he wanted to further himself with the Rangers. The Rangers’ training and missions were brutal. There was a clear indication of rank and who issued the orders and who obeyed, though during off time it was clear they were all a close family. It was never easy losing the few that did, but he always found a way to make everyone stronger with each loss. He stayed faithful to the Rangers until it he felt it was time to retire.

His parents had long been passed away at this point and felt himself almost .. lost. Wandering aimlessly from haphazardly from odd job to merc job back to odd job. It wasn’t until the local government of Mars requested his experience in a particularly dangerous area, the lunar high security prison. He felt he had a purpose again while he protected these people. Whether it was society from them, or them from themselves. They understood his dedication and despite being a temporary help they offered him a permanent position with the rank of Major. He spent the next few years there and learned that most of them were still just people. Granted there were few that were far too gone to even be considered as such, but most could still be talked to, dealt with, or even be somewhat on friendly terms. Though it never swayed his judgement or couriered special favors he was always professional and saw through most of the prisoners. He was surprised to hear from Starfleet one day with an interesting proposal. Apparently they had a fairly new, specialized prison ship that needed his experience. It wasn’t strictly Starfleet, though they were in command of the ship. He considered their offer for a few days before accepting it and boarding a shuttle. What sort of experience would this place have? What would it need? Only time would tell.
